New logo: Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra

The Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra (OPL, Orchestre philharmonique du Luxembourg in French) was founded in 1933 as the orchestra of RTL, Luxembourg's state broadcaster. When RTL was privatized in the 1990s, the orchestra was turned into a separate institution and adopted its current name.

This month it has adopted a new visual identity, created by Justus Oehler of Pentagram in Berlin. He also designed the identity for Philharmonie Luxembourg, the orchestra's concert hall, for its opening in 2005.

Previous logo.

"The new mark is comprised of four overlapping transluscent colour rings (cyan, green, magenta and yellow), resulting in a multi-colour blossom-like symbol that forms the shape of the letter O. The identity brings a sense of energy, diversity, fun and passion to the OPL brand." - Pentagram
